Death Valley Gold Mine

This picture illustrates a divine truth found in Chapter 14 of my inspirational book, THE GREATEST MOMENT.

The painting is word picture about Death Valley, which is my lead-in to the chapter about hidden treasure in the Cross. Like undiscovered gold, ‘life” can be found in the most unexpected places. We normally associate Death Valley with death and loss. We often do the same with Calvary, but there are living treasures to be discovered there. Life is one of them. Aspects of life are hidden in the barrenness of Death Valley. Something similar can be said for the Cross.

As for the painting, my second, I’m learning how to blend warm and cool colors to create depth. Notice the shovel stuck into the ground, next to the pick. And no, those are not watermelons, they’re barrel cactus.

The Visitation

THE VISITATION

My newest painting has a story and a message. It portrays a few of the great moments in my book, The Greatest Moment. Enjoy the painting as you ponder the greatness of God.

An ancient mountain stands tall in the background from which flows a mighty river. The waters run pure and support life. Above, the sky is aflame with anointing. A dove hovers in the foreground, waiting for the right moment to descend. Evergreens grow strong as they reach towards the heavens. One tree, though, is different from the others. Like the river, it also contains life and its leaves provide healing for those who are hurting. A little lost lamb comes to drink from the living waters and is refreshed. All those who are thirsty are welcome in this place.

Multnomah County Library adding The Greatest Moment

Two branches from Multnomah County Library (MCL), Central and Midland, will be stocking my book, THE GREATEST MOMENT. So, if any of you do not have a copy or can’t afford one, now you can read it for free—that is, if you live in the Portland-Vancouver area.

If your city has a library, you can also suggest my book. It would be much appreciated. That’s what I did last week, and MCL just approved the request. * Such outreaches to the public are a good way to share the Gospel.

THE GREATEST MOMENT Reaching Thousands

THE GREATEST MOMENT has reached out to, and touched, thousands.

For this, Lord, we thank you, and for so much more!

Here are some of the readers’ comments and reviews:


The Greatest Moment delivers a message right from the heart of God with compassion and clarity. It will capture your attention and spark the awakening your soul is longing for.

—Patricia Kuehl
Executive Assistant, Educator, Former Director of Christian Education at Calvary Temple in Portland, Oregon


“Fall in love with God”

Calvin Tadema writes, “If you haven’t read through the Bible, The Greatest Moment will whet your appetite. If you have, this book will spark your memory with new and creative insights. The message of the book treats the Scripture as an old friend, revealing a continuity that comes from a deep relationship by the author.”

The Greatest Moment “speaks to those who know their Bible and those who do not.”

Stanley C. Baldwin writes, “I must confess I began reading this book with more than a little skepticism, simply because I am so jaded with superlative claims for practically everything in the marketplace, whether institutions, products, services, or books. All of them are the ‘greatest.’ As I began reading The Greatest Moment, I soon discovered that some claims of great, greater, and greatest are both legitimate and important. Jesus himself spoke of greatest commandments, prophets, acts, and attitudes.

Once past my initial skepticism, I found a writing style that intrigued and impressed me, including some personal revelations that spoke of honesty in the author. I liked the examples where he showed his humanity, not just his theological training. I laughed when he confessed that his attempt to liken the Trinity to ice, water, and steam didn’t really work, even for him.

My second misgiving arose when I perceived he was essentially presenting an overview of the whole Bible. ‘This could be quite helpful,’ I thought, ‘for biblical illiterates.’ Seasoned pastor/teacher types like me already knew all that stuff. However, the more I read, the more I realized I was benefitting from his informed retelling of events from a fresh perspective. I therefore recommend this book to adults, regardless of their minimal or advanced knowledge of the Bible.”

Stanley Baldwin has authored 24 books, including 4 best-sellers.


Sometimes, a short review speaks volumes:

Pastor Steve Berry writes, “I strongly endorse this great book!”

Last year, we visited Alston’s Corner Assembly of God. Pastor Steve allowed us to share about The Greatest Moment, give out a few copies, and set up a book table in the foyer.

Twenty (20) books were released into the hands of harvesters.

Thank you Pastor SteveandJoyce Berry. Thank you Alston’s Corner Assembly of God Church.


“As an editor of Christian publications, I have worked with Charles Earl Harrel for many years, receiving his written words in devotional materials. He writes from the heart and always makes it plain how readers can apply the Word of God in everyday life. I highly recommend this author to the Christian community at large!”

—Gary Wilde
Author, Pastor, Editor for Devotions at Standard Publishing
